for the "hardball" scoreboa scoreboard. we begin tonight in west virginia and it's shocking number. popular governor joe mansion, a democrat, now trailing in the race for senate republican, john raese. even though most voters in west virginia approve, a majority say they want republicans controlling congress. now to wisconsin where the news isn't good for senator russ feingold. the ppp shows feingold trailing ron johnson by 11 points. and an update on the big governor's race in california. jerry brown has a five-point lead over meg whitman and she's obviously trying perhaps unsuccessfully to buy that race. muslim bashing right now is one of the themes of the value voters summit this past weekend and newt gingrich leads the way in whipping it in this country. here he is stoking fear in what he calls the threat of sharia law. >> i have no problem with the mosques in new york city that are peaceful and obey american law, but i am opposed to any effort to impose sharia on the united states and we should have -- we should have a federal law that says under no circumstances in any jurisdiction in the unit

brown election we know from the events in nernlingsz and virginia and all the elections we had that no such parallel has taken place regardless of how the midterms turn out. we already know that the popularity of the new, new deal simply isn't there in practical octoberive terms, so even if the rosy scenarios don't happen, everybody agrees democrats are going to lose a significant number of seats in the house and senate. how significant, that's for someone else to predict, but that fact in and of itself proves the political climate is different than it needs to be to support the idea we're entering a new, new deal. so, i think the fact that these predictions were so omnipresent says something about why obama and the democrats have so fundamentally overreached. it's because they thought it was true, and they were working on an understanding of the political climate that actually did not track with reality. i think a very good explanation for one of the reasons in the democrats so overreached came from jay cost who does excellent political analysis for real and clear politics. ja

republican house lawmakers are at the tart lumber company in sterling, virginia. they'll roll out the pledge and talk to small business owners. luke russert is on capitol hill for us and, luke, give us the thumbnail sketch here. what is in this pledge? >> the pledge has to deal with five other areas. it has to deal with jobs, the economy, reforming congress and congress spending national security and some of the specific things you'll see in this pledge from the republicans today, they'll rule out the following. they want to reduce government spending and go back to 2008 levels that has to do with national security. they want to repeal the national health care law and mortgage giants fannie mae and freddie mac and they want to make the bush tax cuts permanent. those are some of the main facefa facets and president obama is coming on stage right now and we'll hear from him and his national security speech. >> the president, when you recall when he first went before this world stage basically said to folks there that he knows that there are a lot of expectations accompanying my presidency. let
